CAM-AIR!

I picked up couple of a Deals Wheels Glue Bombs for a kit bashing project. The plan is to make a Custom Deals Wheels '57 Chevy Street Machine!

The Chevy was held together with a Lot of old Testors Glue. I got it wet and put it in the freezer overnight. I managed to get the model apart without doing too much more damage to the body. I glued the cracks in the body with Zap-A-Gap, Green Label CA Glue.
Fortunately the body damage wont show on the finished Heavy Chevy.

The Camaro Body was in pretty good shape. I decided the put the Camaro Fenders on the Chevy. So, I cut off the body sides with a Cut-Off Wheel in a Dremel Tool.

MAKE IT WIDE!

After moving the Z-28 Sides around a little I found the Perfect mounting points on the '57 Chevy Body.

I held the body parts together and marked the mounting line for the Z-28 Sides.

Next, I glued the sides in place with Zap-A-Gap Green Label Glue.

PULL IT IN!

The Z-28 sides stick out too much at the front/bottom...

I cut along the seam and moved the front panels in closer!

THE REAR END!

I cut a piece of sheet plastic to fit between the rear fenders, for a New Roll Pan. Then I glued it in place.

The bottom edge of the body was a little rough, so I marked a straight line above the problem area...

DSCN4435H_zpse7c56ccb.jpg

I cut along the line with a Cut-Off Wheel in the Dremel Tool. Then I cut a length of plastic strip to fit and glued it in place!
